    pixel aspect ratio cofusion


      HI, I have a heap of digibeta footage digitised using black magic.

      It is widescreen 16x9, 720x576 PAL. however on inspection of the properties, the .mov file has pixel aspect ratio is shown as 1.0940.

      In after effects, if the footage was interpreted to be widescreen pixels (1.4587) it would then appear in its orgnal propotions on screen.

      However, in Premiere when the pixel aspect ratio is interpreted as widescreen two vertical black bars are added to the sides of the footage, which retains its squashed appearence

      Obviously I'm missing something, but ive been searching now for 2 hours and cant seem to find any clues?
